Canon EOS M3 Image
The Canon EOS M3 Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera is set to be officially released Friday February 6th. A few days away we now have the Canon EOS M3 image leaked. Only one image is floating around the web at this time but it looks very legitimate. You can expect this to be the new Canon EOS M3.
I've added the presumable features to the image above based on what we can see, they are as follows:
- M Lens Mount System
- No Electronic Viewfinder
- Improved Grip & Battery Life
- Articulating Screen
- No Audio In/Out
- Upper Custom Function Button
- Exposure Compensation Dial
- Mode Dial
For further specifications on the EOS M3 and other Canon cameras being released next week, read the previous post. Whether the Canon EOS M has got you all giggly or red in the face, head over the most popular EOS M forum at DPReview and join the discussion.
Thoughts on the Future of Mirrorless Cameras
I understand the Canon EOS M & others may not make you look like a pro. If you are new to the camera game or missed a few years, it will be valuable for you to understand that mirrorless cameras are as capable as DSLRs in most ways, though you'll find fanboys and fangirls on both sides of the fence. I'm not saying the particular comparison of the EOS M line vs a (say) 5D line is an equal one, but the days having the quality of your work being measured by the size of your gear are over.
Mirrorless cameras are forecasted to hit their peak in consumer interest thus far in Demember 2015. It will be interesting in the coming years to see if the miniaturization of the technology will be proven better and embraced as the computer was; or rejected and scaled back up as cell phones have.
It's the constant question of revolutionary or evolutionary.
